Pakui Hardware: Virtual Care
For their first solo exhibition in the UK, Pakui Hardware (artists Neringa Cerniauskaite and Ugnius Gelguda) will present a newly devised commission created specially for Baltic’s level 2 gallery space, exploring the subject of robotic and virtual care at a particularly significant moment when we find ourselves more concerned than ever with the quality and accessibility of healthcare.
They manipulate the aesthetics of care and medical settings, interrogating the technologies whose job it is to sustain bodies in different states of injury, decline and mutation. Their work also looks towards possible futures, allowing them to consider the encroachment of technology on human life and relationships

Pakui Hardware’s work considers the movement of capital through bodies, technology and materials and how it shapes our realities.
